After graduating from Portsmouth University in 1985 with a BA (Hons) degree in geography, Nicholas joined Lloyds Life Assurance Limited in Peterborough. In 1991 Nicholas joined, as a fund manager, the asset management company which later became Marlborough Investment Management Limited. He was responsible for a total re-organisation of its investment processes, the positive results of which formed the platform for significant expansion of the business. He was appointed investment director of Marlborough Fund Managers Limited during 1998. On a day-to-day basis Nicholas, together with colleagues Gurjit Soggi and Raj Manon, is responsible for the management of Marlborough’s three risk graded Fund of Funds products.

He worked within the investment team from day one, initially analysing unit trusts and OEICs, and working closely with the investment director Nicholas Cooling.
